Try-outs for high school bowling may be conducted using the following guidelines:

  1. Tryouts may begin on Monday following Thanksgiving (November 27, 2017).
  2. Tryouts may be one week in length.
  3. Tryouts may not be conducted during the KSHSAA holiday non-practice dates of December 23-27, 2017.
  4. Students must have a physical examination in order to tryout. They will need a PPE (physical exam) and a concussion head injury form on file in the school office prior to their first day of school tryouts.


No student representing a KSHSAA member high school shall participate in more than 10 days of competition during a season, exclusive of the regional and state tournaments.


Regional tournaments will be conducted during the week of February 19-24, 2018. There will be 3 regional tournaments in Class 6A and 4 regional tournaments in Class 5-1A.
Schools with both a boys and girls team will not be split. Schools with single gender teams will take turns traveling to other sites in order to provide for an equal number of team insofar as possible.
Regional Assignments will be posted no later than December 1.


This year (2018) the Boys will compete first at post-season tournaments, followed by the Girls competition.
During regional competition, three regular games of American Tenpins will be bowled using the top four scores per game to determine the total pin count. Four additional games will be bowled in Baker format. The total for the three regular Tenpin games plus the total from the four Baker games will be added together. The highest pin count wins.


144 bowlers will qualify for state competition in Class 6A – 72 in Girls and 72 in Boys. 192 bowlers will qualify for state competition in Class 5-1A – 96 in Girls and 96 in Boys.
TEAM – In 6A, the top three (3) teams at three (3) regional tournaments will qualify for the state tournament. In 5-1A, the top three (3) teams at four (4) regional tournaments will qualify for the state tournament.
INDIVIDUALS – If a school enters fewer than 4 participants at a regional tournament, they will compete for individual honors. The top 6 bowlers in American Tenpin competition at each regional site that are not members of a qualifying team will qualify for the state tournament.
